I always suggest the Stevens Coolidge Place as a location, but many clients choose someplace else because a permit fee is required to shoot here and if they’ve never been, they just don’t realize how beautiful it is! I have to say, the fee is worth every single penny. This estate, right near North Andover center has a rose garden with a reflecting pool, a field, an orchard, a kitchen garden, perennial garden, beautiful old trees. Just. Perfect. So, naturally I was excited when this family chose it for our location. It’s such a perfect place for kids — plenty of room for them to run, play hide and seek, and experience a really beautiful spot. We had a great time — and they brought their awesome dogs too!
